If there is one principle that should govern any security strategy, it should be being proactive. This produces the best results; minimises breach frequency and severity, and also has a positive impact on your bottom line.
The Benefits of Proactive Web Security
A recent study comparing the financial impact of proactive or reactive IT security strategies within the Healthcare sector showed that it is indeed better for a business’ bottom line to be proactive:
“With the rapid escalation of information security breaches, organisations in every industry have struggled to learn how to defend themselves against an evolving set of threats. In the healthcare sector, protecting patient data — a rich source of personal information — has long been a concern…
In our economic analysis, we found that the proactive group experiences smaller breaches and lower breach notification costs than the reactive group…
Managers… should pay considerable attention to decision processes in security investment in order to maximize the effectiveness of the investments. Such effectiveness is particularly important for organisations operating with constrained resources and evolving security threats.” (Kwon, Johnson, 2014)
